[image]LEND south polar map of enhanced hydrogen
Since hydrogen is a component of water, scientists look for areas with more abundant hydrogen to search for possible deposits of water ice on the Moon. LEND can identify areas enriched in hydrogen by looking at the numbers of subatomic particles called neutrons that are constantly emitted from the lunar surface. A signature of more abundant hydrogen is a decrease in the number of neutrons moving at certain speeds, called epithermal neutrons...

[image]Radar map of the lunar north polar region
The Mini-RF radar conducted a polar imaging campaign, whose goals were to explore the permanently shadowed crater floors that exist in the polar regions. Over 98% of both polar regions were imaged. This image shows a mosaic that consists of several hundred passes of Mini-RF data. It covers within 20° latitude of the Moon’s north polar region. The mosaic shows the circular polarization ratio which is a scientific product we produce to measure surface roughness and can also be used to search fo...

[image]The lunar poles in ultraviolet light
LAMP sees in the dark using ultraviolet light reflected off the lunar surface. The ultraviolet light is a specific type, called Lyman-alpha, generated by stars and a thin gas of hydrogen atoms in space. Maps of the North (right) and South (left) poles were created using the first year of LAMP's night-side observations. Bright areas are reflecting lots of Lyman-alpha ultraviolet light, while dark regions reflect little...

[image]Radiation surrounding the moon
The purpose of the CRaTER instrument on LRO is to advance the understanding of Solar Cosmic Radiation (SCR) and Galactic Cosmic Radiation (GCR) in the lunar environment. Of special interest are the hazards they pose to humans and technological systems, and the physical processes which control their intensity and variability. The figure shows the daily-averaged absorbed dose rates measured by the two sets of CRaTER radiation detectors during the first 18 months of the LRO mission...

[image]New maps of lunar surface characteristics
LOLA data give us three complementary views of the near side of the moon: the contours of the landscape, or topography (left), along with new maps of the surface slope values (middle) and the roughness of the topography (right). All three views are centered on the relatively young impact crater Tycho, with the Orientale basin on the left side. The slope magnitude indicates the steepness of terrain, while roughness indicates the presence of large blocks, both of which are important for surface op...

[image]The lunar farside as never seen before!
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) Wide Angle Camera (WAC) provides the most complete look at the size and shape of the surface features on the farside of the moon to date. This global mosaic is comprised of over 15,000 WAC images acquired between November 2009 and February 2011, centered at 180° longitude, 0° latitude. Credit: NASA/Goddard/Arizona State University

[image]South Pole Illumination Map - NASA
The spin axis of the Moon is tilted by only 1.54 degrees (compared to Earth's 23.5 degrees), leaving some areas near the poles in permanent shadow while other nearby regions remain sunlit for the majority of the year. One of the primary objectives of LROC is to unambiguously identify these regions. In a six month (six lunar days) period, the LROC Wide Angle Camera (WAC) collected 1,700 images of the South Pole covering the same area...

[image]Gemini North Observatory - C.E. Woodward, K. Roth, A. Stephens and the LCROSS Impact Team. Gemini Observatory/AURA.
Shown here is Gemini-North Acquisition Camera image of the Moon's south pole with the LCROSS impact site near the center. This image was obtained on Oct 8, 2009, one day before impact. The dark ring is the field lens holder for the Altair adaptive optics system; it is 25 arcsec in radius. The observers can use any bright lunar feature within this ring as a pseudo-star to guide the telescope, specifically, to keep the science detector's field of view centered over the area of expected impact plum...
